2017 Festival Artists


We are SWIG … a celtic, contemporary, pop trio based in Nova Scotia’s Annapolis Valley. Founded in 1984 as a four piece band, the name SWIG is in an acronym for the founding four’s heritage: Scotch, Welsh, Irish, and German. Mark Roberts (mandolin, whistles, vocals) is the last remaining original member of the group. Bill Doucet (guitar, harmonica, percussion, vocals) and Sara Sponagle (bass, vocals) round out our line up.

With three lead vocalists and strong three part harmonies we are equally at home covering everything from traditional to indie pop.
